Five-times engaged and thrice wedded, ‘Jenny from the Block’ has another big rock on her ring finger — and it’s gorgeous! Nearly 20 years after their split in 2002, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez recently announced that they’re engaged to be married once again.
On April 8th, J.Lo took to Instagram to show off her jaw-dropping 8.5 carat extremely rare, natural green diamond center stone, set with a white diamond on each side on a platinum band.
This isn’t the first time Lopez has worn a colored diamond engagement ring on her special finger. She sported a 8.5 carat blue diamond engagement ring while with Marc Anthony. Bennifer’s OG engagement ring featured a pink diamond and cost an estimated $2.5 million at the time. Diamond experts say J.Lo’s 2022 uber-rare green diamond engagement ring is estimated to be worth $5-10 million.
Evidently, no expense can be spared when it comes to asking for J.Lo’s hand in marriage. But you don’t have to be a celeb to bling out your ring. This list of Jennifer Lopez-inspired engagement rings and cocktail rings is perfect for the budget-conscious bride-to-be.
